Cole: Lions LB’s Ranked 27th in the NFL

Jason Cole at Yahoo Sports! has another ranking out, and this time it is the NFL’s LB’s, and at way at the bottom ranked at number 27 he has the Lions:

27. Detroit: Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, who’s as good a defensive mind as you’ll find, is hoping to milk two more good seasons out of outside linebacker Julian Peterson, figuring the upgrades Detroit made on the defensive line will free Peterson for more sacks. That’s entirely plausible. DeAndre Levy is a middle linebacker comparable to London Fletcher: He’ll make all the tackles he’s supposed to make, but he won’t make a lot of game-changing plays. The rest of the group is a JAG-fest, with the likes of Landon Johnson, Zack Follett, Jordon Dizon and Ashlee Palmer. But at least Follett, Dizon and Palmer are all young, giving them some growth potential.
